Overview

"Could someone give me an easy way to look up the sed and awk commands for Solaris?" asked a time-pressed computer design engineer. Most Solaris users use it in a professional technical environment. They're looking for the fastest way to find a needed command so they can get on with their work. The Solaris Essential Reference assumes that you're well versed in general UNIX skills and simply need some pointers on how to get the most out of Solaris. This book provides clear and concise instruction on how to perform important administration and management tasks, and use some of the more powerful commands and more advanced topics. It includes the best way to implement the most frequently used commands, deal with shell scripting, administer your own system, and utilize effective security. Bonus coverage includes information on third-party software packages available for Solaris that are essential to operating a good system. Such applications are pico, pine, top, TCP Wrappers, and more.

Editorial Reviews


This Solaris desktop companion contains concise, accessible solutions in command tables, cross-references and short descriptions. Although this book was written primarily for Solaris 2.5 and 2.6, commands listed in this reference will work on Solaris 7. Written from the perspective of a command-line loyalist, this book does not address any of the GUI features now available.

  • Covers shell scripting commands and environment variables.
  • Includes network administration functions such as daemons, servers, mail systems and network file systems.
  • Addresses security processes like system auditing, ASET, network sniffing and Kerberos.
Advantages:
  • This reference contains mostly command listings and short definitions.
  • The appendix includes changes made in Solaris from version 2.2 to Solaris 7.
